Driving Simulators for ADAS TESting:

How your ADAS testing and development can benefit from a Driver-in-the-loop simulator.

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are developing at a rapid rate, as are the tests and regulations around them. As a result a driving simulator is becoming a crucial asset for automotive ADAS testing and development.

Are you interested in learning about how Dynisma's high levels of correlation can help the development and testing of your ADAS systems? Read below to find out more.

Dynisma simulators can perform the entire suite of NCAP Lane Support System (LSS) tests, bringing advantages to the testing of each scenario. Use a simulator to test and optimise your Lane Keep Assist (LKA), preventing lane ‘bouncing’ to improve driver comfort and trust in the system. It can also be used to easily test lane markings from different countries to ensure the system works effectively for all of them.

Dynisma’s simulators are also well suited for Emergency Lane Keeping (ELK) development, with the realistic motion allowing engineers to evaluate and test ELK systems earlier in the development process. It can also be used to weed out false positives where the system acts unnecessarily or in a dangerous manner, a common irritant for many modern drivers.

Adaptive Cruise Control

As Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is one of the most commonly used ADAS features it is vital to ensure that it is fully optimised for both safety and comfort. It is important to ensure that the ACC system works in a safe, smooth and predictable manner in a variety of different conditions, which can be thoroughly tested in a Dynisma simulator. 


Use a Dynisma simulator to test various Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) scenarios — with the class-leading motion enabling manufacturers to perform their development and validation as realistically as in real life but in a cheaper, faster and more sustainable way. How driver reaction/interaction affects the AEB system.



It is important to optimise the driver handover and interaction experience for an ADAS or Autonomous Driving (AD) system, not only from a comfort view but also from one of safety. A poor and inefficient driver-handover can result in a driver lacking trust in the system, or lead to them over-reacting to regaining control which could lead to a dangerous situation. It is also increasingly common to see driver-safety features such as hand-on-the-wheel warnings being tricked and worked around. By being able to stress-test this system in a simulator you can ensure that your system is unable to be tricked into a potential unsafe scenario.

Driver Status Monitoring

With Driver Status Monitoring (DSM) becoming a necessary part of a 5-star NCAP Occupant Status Monitoring (OSM) safety score, it is important to ensure that these systems work flawlessly.

This can be done easily with a driving simulator, allowing companies to perform a number of controlled tests to ensure their DSM works in a variety of conditions, scenarios and stress-tests. Thanks to the realism of Dynisma’s motion simulators, this virtual testing will result in accurate, realiable data that can be used to fine-tune the systems. 

Fault Injection & Dangerous Scenarios

What happens when your vehicle is driving with its AD or ADAS systems active and suddenly a tyre blows out? While offline simulations can try to model this, it’s not until this scenario occurs with a driver in the seat that it can truly be tested to ensure that the system works to assist the driver rather than hinder and worsen the situation.

However, due to the inherent danger associated with a scenario like this, it is best performed on a simulator to assure driver safety.


Why choose DMG technology?

  • New DMG-X simulator produces high ride fidelity resulting in better feel and more realistic testing.
  • Highly correlative motion that allows engineers to test and develop faster than ever before.
  • Motorsport-bred, low-latency, high-bandwidth DMG systems set new standards in automotive simulator technology offering an experience as close to reality as possible.
  • Dynisma’s simulators accelerate new car development by expediting the deployment of prototype vehicles for physical testing.
  • The class-leading DMG 360XY's infinite yaw unlocks true 1:1 rotation, resulting in the best urban driving simulation available with no-miscues or re-centering.
